Race to be Adrian Lam’s successor at Wigan heats up

With Wigan head coach Adrian Lam exiting the club at the end of the season, it will be up to the likes of General Manager Kris Radlinski and chairman Ian Lenagan to decide on his successor.

Current assistant coach Matty Peet has been linked with the role as have those outside the club such as Trent Barrett and Brian McDermott.

But, Lam believes the new boss should be chosen from those around him like Peet, John Winder or Sean O’Loughlin.

“What I’ve been really proud of here is the staff that have been working with me,” Lam said.

“I’ve got 11 staff as we speak and they’ve all been outstanding and they’d all do a great job in any role.

“Matty, John and Sean could all coach a Super League club in their own time.

I’ve been proud of them and if that’s an option for the club, so be it – they’ll decide and settle on that in the near future.”
